This mod brings together content from the cancelled Half-Life 2: Episode 3, and Half-Life 2: Episode 1, with more updates to come.

RSS Half-Life 2: Aftermath - Release 1

In light of recent events in the Half-Life community, the release schedule for this mod was sped up significantly.

Posted by on

Due in no small part to Marc Laidlaw's Epistle 3 post, the release schedule for this mod was slightly stepped up.

Half-Life 2: Aftermath - Release 1

This mod should be played in conjunction with watching this Valve News Network video, "The Half-Life 3 Beta Map Leak":

Release 1 of the mod contains:

  • 11 levels created by Valve between 2012 and 2013, intended for Half-Life 3. Keep in mind that these levels were gameplay experiments, not actual storyline based levels.
  • 4 demonstration levels created by Lever Softworks to show various functions and NPCs not seen in those levels.
  • weapon_proto1, a Combine laser-gun that shoot through walls, intended for Episode 3.
  • hl2eb_weapon_proto1_debug, a command which toggles the Developer Console spam created by weapon_proto1.
  • npc_combine_armored, an Armored Combine Soldier, intended for Episode 3.
  • npc_wpnscanner, a City Scanner with a laser gun, intended for Episode 3.

Unfortunately, npc_surface could not be included in mod, as we do not have the sufficient source code. For more information, consult the mod's ReadMe.txt file.

Future releases coming soon!

I think this is a bad idea. Nobody should be helping Valve out at all with anything regarding Half-Life since they killed the series.

It's not helping Valve with anything. It's documentation for the community.

Valve wants to abandon and forget Half-Life because it's something everyone expects from them but they'd rather people didn't as they don't want and may not even be sure they can make it right.

It's helping the community piece the fragments into something resembling the game they've been waiting for.

Hi, Has anyone installed the HL2 Aftermath here?
I cant get it to show up in my Steam Games Library, I've got everything installed + set SDK 2013 Singleplayer to upcoming like the Readme says.
HL2 Aftermath is in sourcemods folder on my C:/

HL2, Ep1, Ep2 and SDK 2013 are installed on my D:/SteamLibrary

Does everything need to be on the C:/ to work?

I ask this because my SSD is small..120GB with 10GB free space..

Any help would be appreciated.

Jackathan, will you do the HL2 EP3 mod campaign based on Mark's unofficial story? Also, what will release 2 bring out?

I hope for the mac release. The mode won't launch on mac steam client because of dll files in the 'bin' folder. Please, make the mac version too!
